    Log in as a user that has the User Administration Role.

    GoTo User Administration->Roles

    Type user id in Search box, and select in Users.

    Click start

    Once user is return, click Edit. You should be able to assign roles in the right hand side of the Content Area under Role Assignment

    Hi Pavan

    There are two ways of assigning roles to users.

    <b>1. Select a role and add several users to it.</b>

    i. Go to User Administration -> Roles.

    ii. In the search field give your role name, select Roles and when upon getting the result, click on Edit.

    iii. Now in the seach field at the bottom right corner, give your user ids and click on Start. Upon getting the results, check the user and click on Add.

    iv. Save your settings.

    <b>2. Select a user and add several roles to him.</b>

    i. Go to User Administration -> Roles.

    ii. In the search field give your user id, select Users and when upon getting the result, click on Edit.

    iii. Now in the seach field at the bottom right corner, give your role names and click on Start. Upon getting the results, check the roles that you need to assign to the users and click on Add.

    iv. Save your settings.

    Hope that helps.

    Best Regards
